The Krups XP5280 is a professional-grade espresso machine designed for casual consumers and business professionals seeking a clean, high-end, and effective solution. In all respects, it’s basically a smaller and less featured version of the XP5240. It still uses the same Krups Precise Temp system for compressing coffee grounds based on the user’s chosen configuration, but it hosts a lower wattage thermoblock with a 15 bar pump, Krups' legacy steam nozzle (known for many problems), and there is no pressured portafilter. Regardless, the unit does offer a easy-cleaning frothing nozzle and a die-cast construction. There are very few actual user reviews pertaining to the Krups XP5280, but like its superior, they have been mixed.
